Bayer 04 Leverkusen


Hakan Calhanoglu: We conceded first but we did really well to come back. We’ve got a great team that's playing well: We showed a lot of character and we showed what we can do today.

Karim Bellarabi: They scored first but I'm delighted we were able to turn things around in the second half. It's obviously nice to have scored again, but I'm really please for Julian (Brandt) that he scored again.

Hertha Berlin


Marvin Plattenhardt: It was a tough game. We were really good in the first half, very aggressive and compact. We wanted more than a 4-2 defeat, we wanted a point. But we'll analyse the game and hopefully do better next week.

John Heitinga: I think we played well and we worked hard until the end. Out team spirit was good. I have to credit y team-mates for the work they put in, but unfortunately we leave empty-handed. We've got a great group of players here and if we work hard, it's going to be a good season.
